head coach says do not put all the blame of this offense on one man. >> it's a problem regardless who is the quarterback. sometimes it looks like it's all the quarterback, and it's understandable when you lose a few pieces of the puzzle, the quarterback is going to look pretty average when we're playing pretty average as a group. we got to get better and we can't make the mistakes we made during the game. the three turnovers without not talking about anybody's play. >> beck is now 0-7 as an nfl starter. four losses came when beck played for next week's opponent, the dolphins and three came this season. how is team morale? lindsay murphy had the not so fun task of finding out. >> reporter: other week means another loss for the redskins. it's been four in a row. october2nd was the last time

conference. >> if you've been in this league, you understand, it's about production. but you have to have a goal. and i think we've been proved in a lot of areas. look at offense, it's tough to take for me. i understand how this thing works. we have a lot of young guys with talent that now are collectively not on the same page. with all this valuable experiences with some of these young guys hopefully it pays off shortly. >> hopefully sunny florida means a sunny disposition for the skins next week. good night. captions by: caption colorado, llc.
